Mayor Brigit Bennington

We’re excited to share that a variety of new restaurants are opening in the winter of this year, expanding dining options in Hesperia.

Rosa Maria’s, a destination restaurant in Southern California, chose Hesperia for its first location in the Mojave River Valley. The restaurant is located at the intersection of Bear Valley Road and Cypress Avenue.

Dairy Queen is returning to Hesperia after being gone for more than a decade. Their latest location is situated immediately adjacent to the new Rosa Maria’s.

Making its debut in Hesperia, Panera Bread features a drive-thru at their new location in the Aldi shopping center at Bear Valley Road and Mojave Fish Hatchery Road.  

We’re excited to welcome these new dining establishments and are grateful for their tremendous investment in our City. 

We’re equally grateful to our community members for their efforts to protect our local environment and Help Keep Hesperia Beautiful.  

In the past year, we collected almost 160 tons of unwanted items and trash through various initiatives, including Neighborhood Beautification Day, Tire Amnesty Day, E-Waste Recycling, and Community Cleanup events.

In 2021, we launched our HEART Program, a mobile app aimed at tackling the issue of illegal dumping in Hesperia. The app allows users to easily report illegal dumpsites by providing pictures, details, and precise geolocations for quick response.  In just two years, nearly fifteen hundred tons of trash and debris have been removed from our City thanks to the help of our residents who use this tool to report illegal dumping.  

Serving as Hesperia’s Mayor is an honor.  The City of Hesperia continues to thrive because of the support and contributions of our community.
